    Noticed there is an update for the stock calender. Reading reviews...they say dont do it. I mainly link my Google calender to it to also sync on my iPad.

    What are others using...stock Samsung calender or a different one. Thanks.

    I use the stock calendar and Google calendar, since my stock calendar is synced with my Google account I keep both. I haven't done the update yet. What reasons are they giving to not update??

    I dunno what's meant by "stock" calendar, Samsung or something else.

    I use Samsung calendar, and uninstall any other calendar that my have been there. Samsung calendar is ab fab, imo.

    But no, I haven't got an update.

    Edit
    It seems I've got the update others may be referring to 🤔

    Have you had any problems with that update? I saw comments saying entries were missing and alerts wrong. Thanks.

    Not as far as I know. Everything seems to be in order, and I've created, deleted and edited entries since updating.

    Edit
    You mentioned comments re calendar being iffy, was that for the note 9, or note 8? Note 9 is on 8.1, so may differ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    No update here either. Verizon model.

    I wonder if it's the unlocked note 9's that got the update? Maybe the messages app is something the telco's look into with regard to locked devices 🤔

    I'm in Sydney, on an unlocked, unbranded device.

    Android 9.1? The latest version released by Google (unless the October patch will go up one minor number) is 9.0.0. (And a minor update would be to 9.0.1, if it's not just a security patch.)

    I use assistant a lot to set up reminders. As far as I know Google Calendar is the only one they will show on. I love looking at google calendar widget and see any reminders I have for the day showing up. Does no one else use G.A. for reminders?

    I used my Gear S3 SVoice to set up two reminders today, and often use Bixby and Google Voice - which I assume is Google Assistant (I say "Hi Google" and tell it something). Funny thing, for me Google Voice is much quicker and more accurate than Bixby has been, for most of my requests.

    Okay my original issue was that there is an update for calendar. In looking at reviews online it said that many people were missing things they've added so I've been afraid to update. Has anyone done the current update without issue? This is with the stock calendar app thanks

    Sorry, I have already updated and didn't have any events that were scheduled thru it to check. Google ones are still there but that just means it synced.

    Okay thanks. Because yes I use Google account to sync everything so I also have things on my iPad. That's why I want to be sure there are no issues before I do the update.

    There is also an update for the photo gallery even when I had my Note 5 I didn't do it. There have been people that said they lost lots of photos. Been there done that years ago when I had lost 2500 pictures on my iPad before they had the cloud. So I still haven't done the gallery update either haha
